Kauai is likely to get most of the rain today. There’s a slight chance of thunderstorms there.

Trade winds are coming back Friday, along with the usual windward and mauka showers.

But forecasters say conditions are still unstable and there’s a chance of leeward showers as well.

Another weather system may move in Sunday night bringing more showers during the early part of next week.

Heavy rain and flooding closed the Kalalau trailhead at Haena State Park on Kauai was closed Wednesday at 12:30 p.m.

The Department of Land and Natural Resources will decide today whether the trail can be reopened.
